Claire always has a hard time not jumping in if she's around when I'm taking a chair picture of Will, but it almost always results in at least one cute photo!

Claire took a big spill on the playground, so I went to school to check on her. I arrived just in time for the visit from the Reptile Man. Claire thought it was pretty funny when Mommy held a snake!

I had a great companion helping me out with registration at Backyard Bible Club.

Today we went to a birthday party for our neighbor friends Ellie and Clare, and another neighbor took this photo of Robert and Will watching the kids taking swings at the pinata.

He wasn't sure if he liked them, but they kept him busy for a little while so I could get Claire started on her dinner. We'll keep trying - I know they will eventually be a favorite snack (if his sister doesn't eat them all first).

As I've said before, and I know I will say again, this boy has completely captured my heart. He brings so much joy to our family, and I think he's pretty happy with the family that he's got. :) Claire is his favorite person - there is still no one that can make him laugh as hard (or as frequently!) as she does.
He is still a happy and easygoing little guy, especially if you keep him fed. :) He is still drinking about 5 bottles of formula a day and eats solid foods twice a day - usually a jar of Earth's Best breakfast food in the morning and a serving of organic fruits and/or vegetables with cereal in the evening. He likes to eat, and I'm looking forward to moving on to finger foods in the next month or so.
Will is sitting by himself very well, and now knows how to catch himself when he starts to fall over. No real signs of crawling yet, which suits Mommy just fine!
He has four teeth - two middle ones on the bottom, and two on the top. No, not the two front teeth - the two on either side. We call them his "snake teeth." I'm trying to get a good picture of them before the front teeth come in, which looks like it will happen any day now.
Will still isn't my best sleeper, but with the exception of a few nights, we usually just get up once and then he will sleep until 7 or later. Teething hasn't helped, but his sleep always gets better once those teeth pop through.
We love our sweet Will!!!

We rode a few rides - the teacups, the cars, and the carousel.
Not surprisingly, Claire was most excited about riding the train.
It was a fun day - and a good way to again make a visit to Fiesta Texas.
Claire was not as successful in holding him, but did give sweet Will one of her typically energetic hugs.
The next morning we got up and headed to the beach. Will spent most of the time snuggling with someone under the umbrellas and got in a good nap. Claire had an absolute blast! We weren't sure how she would do since she wasn't too interested in the sand or the water initially, but once she saw the other kids out there having fun, it didn't take her long to join in. She even tried the boogie board - we were so proud of her!
Lunch and naps followed, and too quickly it was time for us to load up and head back home. We had big days planned again for Friday and Saturday and wanted to make sure we all got a good night's sleep. Although short, it was a very fun (and successful!) trip, and we're looking forward to getting some more beach time in again before too long.

Robert had to work late, so I took the kids out for dinner as a treat. Claire was super excited. As soon as we walked in the door, she ran to the counter and proclaimed "I want a HAMBURGER!" So unlike her, and the workers of course thought she was too cute.
We tried out the mesh feeders for the first time with some watermelon, and Will wasn't too sure about this new method of food delivery. Back in the drawer for a try in a couple more weeks!
On Sunday, we all went to Sea World to see the animals and catch a show.
Their visit flew by, but it wasn't so difficult to say goodbye this time since we knew we'd see them again in a few days at the beach!

We pulled the shades up from the windows so that she would have a good view, and it took a few minutes for her to notice it. A smile slowly spread over her face as she walked to the window, pointed, and said "My playset!" The long promised gift had finally arrived!
She thought it was pretty funny that Mommy could fit on the platform, too.

Grandmommy came in town for dinner and got a photo of 3 of the 4 of us...
...since Will managed to sleep through the excitement.
